    Pros

    Really depends on the DM and RVP you end up with. I had great people in both positions for a long time and they left you alone to do your job.

    Cons

    Payroll, and the expectations for the amount of payroll. Seem more concerned with sometimes pointless reports than store conditions and customer service. New regime very cutthroat when it comes to job security

    Advice to Management

    Get back to what makes a successful retail business. Shopping experience and customer service

    When you have a good DM and RVP, you are left alone to do your job

    Extremely tight on payroll. Job security an issue

    Advice to Management

    Get back to core of a good retail experience

    I worked at Rite Aid full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for advancement. the Supervisor/Assistant Manager training classes are good.

    Cons

    District manager leaves much to be desired with unrealistic ideas of what it takes to run a store as that was not part his resume. Wanted things done and was not interested in helping or supplying tools to overcome inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the "Rite Aid experience"... Live it and lead by example.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule is good when needed

    Cons

    Very few opportunities to move up the ranks

    Advice to Management

    DMs, i feel, should be capable to preform or have prior experience as a store manager to have a grasp in the ins and outs of daily operation at the store level
